how do i query lead data from my sugarcrm databse through the soap

Hello
i have the sugar crm plugin on my site. its used to create leads om my personal server.
what. i need to do is
1. retrieve the id number of the lead when created
2. send that data via email to the user
3. have them click on link to update the lead status and retrieve name used.

i have used php before, but i find the soap setup a bit to complex for my level. so if anyone can point out a few facts or show me an example of how to update and query the database throw soap, i would appreciate it.


Thank you so much for your time in advance

There is a substantial amount of information, including examples, for SOAP/PHP at the sugarcrm support site, e.g.

SOAP API examples

Although it seems most of these assume you are using nuSOAP (a php toolkit)
see "what is nuSOAP"
http://support.sugarcrm.com/04_Find_Answers/03_Developers/100Web_Services/100Soap_API/What_is_NuSOAP%3F

Have you looked at any of these examples/resources?

:) version information is just so useful (hint)

note this pathway:
SugarCRM Support > Documentation > Sugar Developer > Sugar Developer Guide 6.5 > Application Framework > Web Services > SOAP Release Notes

My reading of this is that v4_1 is current (of the SOAP API) for SugarCRM v6.5

Do you have a current support arrangement for SugarCRM?
